Vandals spray graffiti on home

•LOGANVILLE - A Loganville man's home in Timberlake Cove subdivision was vandalized last week with hate-filled graffiti.

The victim called police Monday to report someone painted something on his mailbox and also scrawled a racial slur in front of his house. The victim is white, but his girlfriend and his daughter-in-law are black and his grandchildren are of mixed races, according to the police report.

The victim was concerned because he is often away from home several days a week and he feared the graffiti could become a recurring problem. A next-door neighbor cleaned up the racial slur before police could photograph it.

The victim was advised to contact police if the vandalism occurs again.
